We told you how to keep your makeup from melting into a puddle this summer, and we’re back with the ultimate beauty rulebook to help you get through your worst monsoon days, or whatever’s left of them. Trust us, with the humidity levels rising, your skin, hair and makeup needs all the TLC you can give them, and a little quick-fix never hurt.
So, if you want to brave the monsoon like a pro, make these your go-to beauty moves.
- Avoid hair styling products
- Go light on eye makeup
- Use BB or CC cream
- Invest in waterproof mascara
- Get regular pedicures
Avoid hair styling products
If a curling or straightening iron are your go-to styling tools, now is the time to give them a rest. Yes, we said it ‘cause someone had to. During the monsoon, it is best to stick to hair serums that are light in texture and do not weigh your hair down. Make anti-frizz products such as the Dove Dryness Care Shampoo your BFF this monsoon. This nourishing formula enriched with moisturising milk controls frizz and gives you smooth, soft hair.
Go light on eye makeup
You love flaunting that smokey eye you finally mastered, don’t you? But trust us, there will be plenty of occasions to sport it, what with the festive season coming up and all. For now, ditch the heavy eye makeup and invest in waterproof liners that will help you create graphic eye looks that look equally stunning. We trust the Lakmé Eyeconic Liner Pen Fine Tip - Black that allows you to draw intense, dramatic strokes across your eyelids.
Use BB or CC cream
Makeup meltdowns just as common during the monsoon as they are during summer. To prevent them, we suggest using a BB or CC cream instead of a heavy foundation formula. The Pond’s White Beauty BB+ Cream offers instant coverage, moisturises skin and gives you an even-looking skin tone. Plus, the lightweight formula imparts a natural glow and finish we can’t get enough of.
Invest in waterproof mascara
Mascara amps up your eye game like nothing else can, but you don’t want to reach office with mascara running down your face because it rained, and you forgot your umbrella. Invest in waterproof mascara, but with a lightweight formula. Our bets are on the Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara ‘cause it makes our eyes look super dramatic and doesn’t wear our lashes down! Win-win!
Get regular pedicures
Other than oily skin and frizzy hair, the monsoon is also particularly hard on your feet. Dirty water splashing on your feet can lead to foot infections if not cared for well. That’s why we recommend a regular pedicure. Not only with it relax your foot muscles, but it will also keep infections at bay.
